    The application will want us to confirm our email address to use the app for more than 7 days

    If we don't confirm the email address, then after 7 days, we won't be able to use it anymore. It is completely free and there are no limits if the email address is confirmed. Keep in mind that it is a VOIP phone, so it will not work if we're using it to verify something like a Google account.
